Can start using the device in conversation groups of 3-4 people. The device user can list the words he has difficulty in distinguishing (for example, Hospital-Post Office, Taş-Yaş, Kuş-Run). He should have a relative read this list (first by looking at his lips, then by closing his eyes) and then repeat it himself and try to increase his ability to distinguish these words.

The user should now go out and listen to the sounds of nature.

If there is something that the device user does not understand during the conversations, he should not hesitate to make the other person repeat it.
